Sadio Mane is playing at his second Africa Cup of Nations tournament after missing the 2015 edition through injury

Mane has missed two penalties in two games at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt

Uganda’s build-up to the tie was disrupted by a pay dispute which saw players boycott training on Tuesday.

Emmanuel Okwi and substitute Kateregga, from a late free-kick, both forced saves from Alfred Gomis but Senegal’s experience saw them through.

Analysis

BBC Afrique’s Pierre-Antoine Denis

Sadio Mane’s goal in the opening minutes of the game concluded a very good start for Senegal. We saw more evidence of the speed and dynamism of their attacking, and it could be the key factor in leading them to the title.

There was also an excellent performance by Idrissa Gueye – the Everton player controlled the midfield on his own, dictating the pace of his team.

Uganda made too many mistakes, showing too little of the technical ability they possess. In addition, they have made far too many defensive errors for this level of competition, one leading to a goal and the other to Mane’s failed penalty.

They are out, but they have made their nation proud, producing some impressive performances and revealing some very talented players.
